Hi Stuart,

No, they weren't paid. They were just there to tell people how great the job was, and it lasted for about 20 minutes. Given our industry was not doing so good then, the ones I invited considered it their personal mission to make more people choose the profession.

I forgot to mention in my last message that the company gave them "thank you" presents. :)

Did these experts get paid? I might be misunderstanding the situation, but
it sounds as though you were asking her to donate her time to help you do a
job you were getting paid for, but were a little offended when she asked if
you would share your materials.
